    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chesapeake City

    The Chesapeake City area played important roles in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, but today, the area is popular with residents who are looking for a blend of the urban and rural settings. Around 13% of the area's population is comprised of seniors aged 65 years or older, and the county has 15 assisted living facilities.

    In the state of Virginia, there are residential living care facilities and assisted living care facilities, both of which are considered assisted living but differ on the level of care the staff provides. The Virginia Department of Social Services is responsible for overseeing, regulating and licensing these facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chesapeake City

    • Tax rates are an important consideration for seniors looking at affording assisted living in the Chesapeake City area. In Virginia, income from Social Security is exempt from taxation, and other forms of retirement income may be deductible up to $12,000, which can help reduce the end-of-year tax bill.
    • The Chesapeake City area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Chesapeake Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Chesapeake has a cost of living that runs 17% higher than the U.S. average and 8% higher than the Virginia mean. Goods and services are 10% higher and health care is 14% higher than the rest of the nation, which could take more out of a fixed income.
    • Chesapeake City has several public transit options for seniors, including the Hampton Roads Transit system, the Greyhound Bus line and Amtrak service. Seniors can qualify for reduced fairs.
    • Violent crime rates in Chesapeake are around double that of the Virginia average, which means seniors and those visiting will need to take precautions to stay safe.
    • Chesapeake City has an array of community resources for seniors, including the 55 & Better Program, an organization which holds activities especially for seniors in the community, as well as one senior center.
